Roweyn's Ramblings Wk. 31 Pt. 2

If you missed Pt. 1 check it out here....



After Preschool, my Mom and Tayelor picked us up to start our road trip up to Trinity River where we were meeting my Dad at his friends cabin right on the river for the night. Roweyn slept for almost 3 hours (Preschool really wore her out I guess!) and woke up when we hit a very windy part of the drive. We had to stop about 45 minutes before we got there to get some food at the grocery store, and right when we pulled into the parking lot, I turned to look at Roweyn and she had thrown up all over herself. :( I felt so bad she got car sick!! I wasn't feeling that good either but it didn't really occur to me that Roweyn might have been feeling the same way. So then we had to clean everything up and go grocery shopping which put us about an hour behind schedule, but we made it there with no other problems and it was SO nice to finally be out of the car!

There was no cell service there which was kind of nice for once, so I took the majority of my photos with my camera so I wouldn't kill the battery on my phone. We made dinner and had a quiet night at the cabin Friday night and then on Saturday after we cleaned up and did some laundry, including Roweyn's yucky clothes and her car seat, we headed down the road to the river for a couple hours. The water was freezing even though it was in the 90's outside, I couldn't get in past my shins. haha There were some shallow little holes dug up on the sand right at the edge of the water which made the water pretty warm so Roweyn had fun playing in them.

After the river it was time to make our way to Humboldt County to see all our family and go to my cousin's wedding reception which was the main point of our trip.

Sunday was my cousin's "Hoe Down" Wedding Reception. It was so fun and so easy going, totally non traditional which made pretty cool. If I ever get married I imagine mine will be pretty similar. We spent the day outside, eating, exploring and listening to the music while spending time with all our family that was there. That second photo is the view from their back yard. So pretty! The next is the great band that played and last is Rowe hanging out on the hay bale with her Papa. She had a lot of fun playing with my Dad and making him chase her around everywhere.




She found some big logs to play on, and now that I think about it I don't think she stayed still for more than a minute or two the entire time we were there. When it started to cool down and get a little dark out we decided it was time to head over to see our other side of the family at my Aunt's where they were having a Birthday Party for my Uncle.

The next morning we packed everything up and headed over to my Grandma's to say goodbye to her. Roweyn loved exploring her garden.




Lots of flowers to touch, smell and hit which is what she thinks is so funny in that photo on the left, she then proceeded to lounge on the deck for who knows what reason.

Our drive home went pretty smoothly, I think we made two stops, one for lunch and one for dinner. Its about a 6 hour drive, give or take. Apparently Roweyn was really worn out because she was out cold that night. ha I kinda really love that photo of her.


It was quite the week for us and both trips went by so fast which is pretty typical, there never seems to be enough time, I'm just glad we were able to go though.
